6-30-14 – Through The Fence – Early College Prospects - 18. Jake Lemoine, RHP, Houston - AT 6’-5” and 220 pounds, the right-hander has great size and a power arm, sitting 91-93 mph with his fastball and can touch 96. He needs to refine his change-up but his slider is a plus offering, sitting 82-86 mph with great depth and bite. Over 17 starts, he had a 2.87 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 87 K/29 BB over 106.2 innings, showing improvement in his command.

6-29-14 -

(ORIGINAL ARTICLE - 6-5-12) - The Texas Rangers called on Tuesday but it wasn't enough for Bridge City senior pitcher Jake Lemoine to skip college.
Lemoine's father, Jude Lemoine, said his phone rang shortly before 9 a.m., saying the Rangers offered Jake $277,000 to be a fourth-round draft pick.
Jude Lemoine said that was about half of what they were hoping Jake would get.
"We told them we were not going to sign unless we got third round money or better," Jude Lemoine said. "A college education is No. 1 on our priority list."

Houston's 6-5 RHP Jack Lemoine is considered the workhorse of the University of Houston baseball team.

91-93, 96 fastball... ++ 82-87 slider
